Freeroll Your Way Into The €175,000 GTD Special Sunday on HighStakes
16 Aug

If you ever fancied the idea of playing highstakes poker, then next weekend is your big chance, the HighStakes Special Sunday offering you the chance to turn freerolls into tournament buy-ins worth up to €500

A whopping €175,000 is guaranteed across the day’s 23 tournaments, and 75% of the runners are expected to be freeroll and leaderboard ticket winners, with another 20% coming from satellites.

There’s no need to be put off by the HighStakes name and the sight of the occasional €5,000 buy-in, though, the Special Sunday schedule catering for all bankrolls – starting from just €5 and the chance to spin it all up from freerolls.

The Jack of Highstakes Freeze freerolls offer a golden chance to play the Special Sunday events for zero outlay, and can be found daily in the tournament lobby.

A quick peek at the 23-event schedule reveals a fine mix of Bounty KO’s, Turbos, Rebuys and Freezeout events, starting at midday with the Sunday Freeze 5 and ending with a late-evening 500 Second Chance.

That latter tournament already has Marc PlayingWitDreams Kennedy on the list, the former Full Tilt ambassador finding a new lease of life on HighStakes.

He’s not the only big name looking forward to a Special Sunday, however, with Joseph subiime Cheong in the starting line-up of the regular Sunday 500.

HighStakes ambassador Cheong snared his first WSOP title last month in Las Vegas, scooping the $1k Double Stack gold bracelet and a huge $687,782 payday.

Luckily for Cheong, he likely won’t be playing the €10 to €50 buy-ins that your writer is thinking about playing, the mid-afternoon Sunday Freeze 50 with a €2500 guarantee looking like a good bet.

The Sunday 88 will appeal to the Turbo Re-buy crowd, with a 10k starting stack, add-ons available and a €4,888 guarantee, while the Sunday Guanyin 10 is already filling up due to the €1500 guarantee.

Next Sunday it is then for a HighStakes Special Sunday. Get yourself registered here and see if you can spin up a few free entries before the 18th!
